"And again, if you if you're looking for a good read, these are easily rental readily available books civil war John's book, but John has John never stops. Quarterback which came out in hardback. Earlier about a year ago. It just came out in paperback now quarterback just came out in hard down should go. You're thinking of the first major which you had to talk about the other day. I saw then I apologize quarterback is just out inside the most important position in the National Football League. Nothing like an old friend to correct you. But does it to me? So I didn't think he'd mind. No. I'm glad I did. Because I I did get confused, but that's my life. So let's talk about this book.

And I spent a lot of time with Kyle that year and got to know him very well. And and understood how difficult it was for him, Dan and day out to be that guy who wasn't Z guy for the ravens. And I always wanted to go back to the subject in more detail. And I felt like last year was was a great time to do it. Because we have some of the greatest quarterbacks of all time playing right now Tom Brady, obviously drew Brees Aaron Rodgers.
